Yes!

Kevin W Smith, 09.02.2018
It's amazing what this mic system can do and it sounds excellent on everything I've tried. Without any emulation it's a really good microphone, and the emulations are legit. Ocean Way collection for UAD users offers even more options but "out of the box" it's fantastic. Excellent build quality, looks great, sounds great. This is the future of microphones. It doesn't come with mic preamps, but very flat and clean preamps aren't expensive anymore. You probably already have some (it needs 2).

Mine is paired with a UAD Apollo Twin Quad which lets me use different preamp sounds from their channel strips. My current favorite for this mic is the Neve 88RS, but without all that it sounds amazing on it's own; all the options and emulations in the Sphere plugin still work and sound great with just the interface mic preamps.

Excellent microphone at an affordable price

Billy Pilgrim, 15.07.2018
The most important first: The Sphere L22 sounds fantastic, resp. The wide range of emulations makes it easy to find a sound that works well with any sound source.

Just the versatility of the microphone is absolutely unique: microphone model, directional characteristics, filters, even the proximity effect can be influenced in retrospect.

All in all, you can create a sound directly in the Sphere plugin that only requires a little post-processing and "sits" very fast in a mix.

A very innovative product that I can recommend without restriction.
